May 2015:

Our Alaska Hometown Adventure
in Yakutat...


Cannon Beach,
oh how we missed thee...






After a bit of a stroll,
we arrived at Broken Bridge to spread my Dad's ashes;
couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day to do so...



Salmon fry even showed up for this special occasion...





White Alice,
wish we could have spent the day here
although we had to head to the airport to catch our flight back to Juneau...












All good things must come to an end.

Here we're rounding Douglas Island (above),
then flying across Gastineau Channel (below)
via Alaska Airlines,
then approaching the Juneau runway...
Short but sweet.

We all can't wait to head back...

Scott was determined to take part in the
infamous Icy Strait Point ZipRider (world's largest zipline) 
as they promise 
a great tour: 5,300' long, 1,300' vertical drop, 
60 mph maximum speed, and 300' at the highest point from the ground 
for a 1.5 minute ride time, with 6 side-by-side cables - 
although it was to no avail 
because they were not operating on that particular day...


Impossible to pass up this important
establishment in Hoonah during a short stay
while in port...
 
On-step after unloading in Hoonah overnight,
then heading back out to the ocean...
